Default Josh Koscheck and Frank Trigg meet Sept. 19 at UFC 103 in Dallas

It doesn't look "official" yet though...

by John Morgan on Jun 03, 2009 at 7:10 pm ET
Top UFC welterweight contender Josh Koscheck (12-4 MMA, 10-4 UFC) will indeed meet returning UFC veteran Frank Trigg (19-6 MMA, 2-3 UFC) at UFC 103 in Dallas.

Rumors of the bout have been widespread in recent days, and sources close to the event have indicated to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that bout agreements have been distributed and are expected to be finalized shortly.

While initial reports suggested the bout would take place on Sept. 26, and possibly in the U.K., the event will now be held on Sept. 19, just three days after UFC Fight Night 19 in Oklahoma City.

Koscheck started his UFC career by winning seven of his first eight fights in the organization. The American Kickboxing Academy-trained fighter has since gone just 3-3, dropping hard-fought decisions to Georges St. Pierre and Thiago Alves, as well as a surprising TKO to Paulo Thiago in his most recent performance.

Trigg will be fighting for the first time in the UFC since 2005 when back-to-back losses to Georges St. Pierre and Matt Hughes led to his release from the organization. The Xtreme Couture fighter has amassed a 7-2 record since his release, including a four-fight win streak he'll carry into the September contest.

While the UFC generally does not conduct multiple events within such a short time frame, the move is not without precedent. The UFC's first, and-to-date-only, trip to Texas at UFC 69 in Houston on April 7, 2007, was preceded just two days earlier by a UFC Fight Night card held in Las Vegas.

While UFC 103 is expected to take place at the American Airlines Center, an official venue for the event has not been named.

Hmm. I'm not interested in seeing Trigg fight again.

I can't picture Trigg giving Kos any kind of a decent fight. I wouldn't sign Trigg as a sparring partner, much less a fighter. His best years are behind him and his best years were second rate.

I'm just really surprised that the UFC even signed him. I can't help but to think they have something up their sleeves. Trigg will never make it past Kos.

Kos is far from boring,imo. His last couple of fights have been awesome, he's def one of the more underrated fighters in the UFC. One day he'll be a champ, mark my words

Why would Kos take this fight? Everything to lose and nothing to win. Personally, I could not find it in me to cheer for either one of them. Double KO would be fine by me.

Trigg has 3 fights in like 18 months, and all 3 went to decision,
all three against not top notch competition by far.
Heck, his last win was over a guy with 6 fights,
the win before that the guy looks ok, but before that the guy is 5 - 5.

Big step up for Trigg in my opinion, he lost to Lawler in 2007,
I guess you could say he beat Miller in 2006. But that was 3 years ago.

Kos has 3 recent losses, one to a guy who is now 11 - 0,
and the others to GSP and Thiago Alves, the champ and the guy about to fight for the title.
Those were both decision losses....


I think KOS takes this one.

Kos should take this. He is a better wrestler and he should have at least comparable striking.
